To market, to market

I like to think I don't spend very much time at the shops these days. And when it comes to an actual physical shop that's true. But I have to admit I do spend a crapload bit of time browsing the cyber shops.
When I was in my early twenties I could hit up a big city mall or shopping strip for a 10-hour non-stop shop no worries. Now-a-days I can easily jump on Etsy for a quick look for a gift before bed and find myself still clicking hours later.
The drop in the Aussie dollar gave my purse some much-needed respite. But we're back over 80 cents baby and guess what? There's a new market place to spend the wee hours scouring. 1000 Markets is the latest online offering of handmade and artisan goodies. Uh-oh. As an introduction I popped in to their children's marketplace for a mere hour and found so much treasure. I'll be back...
